SANTA CLARA, Calif. – June 16, 2021 – The global mobility industry is experiencing tectonic shifts. Connectivity, autonomous driving, mobility services (including shared) and electrification have disrupted the entire ecosystem. The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has also accelerated this transformation process. As the “new normal” continues to unfold, the vision of “Innovating to Zero,” with zero-emission vehicles, zero waste, zero accidents, zero defects, and zero carbon emissions, will gain momentum.

With this renewed focus on sustainabilty, automakers have prioritized developing transformative, digitally driven business models and value-added services that will create a stronger, more resilient future.

In line with these trends reshaping the mobility landscape, the theme of this year’s Frost & Sullivan Intelligent Mobility Summit 2021 is “Innovating to Zero.” The two-day online summit, scheduled for July 14-15, 2021, will explore how the mobility industry can reshape the future and create long-term value by “Innovating to Zero,” as well as key trends impacting the industry, including skateboard architecture, electrification and connectivity of vehicles.
